  1. No I make sure all / any contents of flush tank is dropped into cassette and emptied to Chemical Toilet before moving off the pitch. PapaT
  2. Hi Everyone with Dometic Cassette a Toilet. Thats is our VIP 575 now approx 18mth old and I’ve notice a lot of water leakage down into the cassette locker, mainly the pink diluted water from the Flush tank. is this leaking between the seal and slider bar at bottom of toilet bowl, and is this due to lack of maintenance on my part. Ie use of OKS 1110 grease and the silicone spray etc to keep the seal fresh. Or does one have to remove and replace the seal annually? appreciate comments on how to stop this seepage down under, as its uncomfortable experience getting wet whilst emptying the cassette PapaT

  4. Hi All thanks for advice on this topic. And I would also advise you that my local caravan dealer ( although semi- retired ), helped me out and sourced the spare part from Coachman Parts and revived the replacement Roller Hanger within 1week. With my own skills, refitted the replacement roller hanger guide and all good to go again. PapaT
  5. Hi John the older version was better in my opinion, as the sliding door stayed closed whilst travelling. The newer model from 2018 VIP onwards now have the sliding door kept in 5he open position whilst travelling with a plastic thumb turn at eye level, but if you forget to lock the door in the open position, the door slides back and forth, until something breaks. ie the roller gear within the track snapped and the door jammed itself in the open position. so i have dismantled the remaining sliding gear, with the door off, and laid a side and await a replacement roller gear as per photo.

  6. Anyone out there that can provide me with a supplier of these sliding door gear for 575/4 toilet door. school boy error - forgot to lock the sliding door in the open position, hence the need for a replacement slider gear as one of them has broken up.
  7. Similar situation happened on our last trip away. Key fob almost separated, and lost its spring out effect. The fob is taped together with the key permanently out until a replacement is ordered. Never thought on warranty issue? papaT
  8. Nigel same bracket as we use, and they fit well against side of caravan PapaT
  9. Thanks ALL problem resolved after I went into my local dealer. They gave me a replace Whale Submersible Pump and IC pressure Controller to try out before I had to bring the caravan in for further investigation. Hoping it wasn’t the Master Control Panel. New pump only solved the problem, but had to re calibrate the IC with new Whale pumpset. So all good to go again. PapaT
  10. These rocker dimmer switches require a press and hold to raise or lower the light level. so press the rocker switch and hold until desired light level is reached. Release and again press and hold to change the light level. PaoaT
  11. Well ALL ive revisited this problem again tonight, checking the copper connecting tabs, ensuring they are clean, and connecting properly. But no joy with any running water. Master Switch On, Pump inserted, press Pump On, and open the kitchen sink, but there’s no Icon display reference to the Tap Running water tap symbol. so strongly believe there’s a problem with the Control Panel or the Submersible Pump? Any other suggestions would be welcome PapaT
  12. During this weekend break, we had to suffer all weekend without incoming water. During set up, inserting the external Whale, and switching on the Master Switch and pressing the Tap Symbol button, all seemed well at first when opening the kitchen sink tap, hot water tank filled as normal, then nothing?. reset the. After Switch Tap button on/off a few times, and I could not get the running water tap symbol to display on the Master Control Panel. i ve checked the external pump Male/Female connections to make sure the submersible pump is inserted correctly and connection is sound. my fear is that the Pump on / pump off switch and master panel maybe be busted ?. anybody else experienced this problem, as I’ve now made contact with my dealer for a quick fix?

  13. Wastemaster is under bed locker, entry via near side locker door. So no need to walk into caravan to get things to set up the caravan everything accessible from outside. 👍🏻
  14. Here’s the photo proof of Aquaroll in front locker. Note the bottom rubber rim that the Aquaroll rolls on is dislodged and raised, so it sit perfectly inside locker. Tidy shelf above supports the ramps, water pump, and corner steady timber footings. alongside the Aquaroll is the EHU cable, water container etc. ive also shown the near side gas locker, with only one gas bottle, three stacking plastic containers to hold the awning pegs, misc fluids, etc, and bucket with cleaning equipment. Oh and another shelf over the top again. cannot fault this style of lockers on Coachman 👍🏻😀
  15. Hi All, yes you can get the aqua roll in the front locker. I’ll send a photo later, as we are all set up on tour at the moment. Only bit of advice is that the rubber rim at bottom end of aqua roll has to be slipped up off its groove, and hay presto the aqua roll fits perfectly well in the front offside lock. also a shelf I fitted above the aqua roll holds my pair of levelling ramps, and corner steady timber feet. And the EHU cable, small watering can is neatly stacked alongside the aqua roll. its amazing what you can hold in these front lockers. papaT
